It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it's another thing to make a portrait of who they are.
- Paul Caponigro
What is portrait Photography?
Portrait Photography is more than just capturing a picture of somebody. It’s an artistic representation of a person’s personality. To highlight who they are at that moment and preserving it forever. It’s more than a quick snapshot of something you stumbled upon. It requires planning, coaching, and a vision of the final image.
Here are some examples of the photo sessions we offer:
Business Headshot portraits are often used for engaging in social media, the about us page and industry specialty sites. Generally speaking, it’s a photograph of an individual with the simple purpose of showing what they look like.
Graduation or Senior Portraits are about celebrating a life stage – for many teens, their entire senior year is filled with milestones, and it is definitely one worth noting and celebrating in many ways, including portraiture. Documenting that with professional photography is one way of ensuring that you never forget who they are, RIGHT now.
An Engagement Photo Session is a portrait session for you and your future spouse. These can be for a specific purpose, like a Save-The-Date card, to be displayed at your wedding reception, or for your wedding website. Other times it’s just a good opportunity to have professional photographs taken of the two of you during this time in your relationship. To chronicle that moment in time. It’s also a great way to get more comfortable being on camera. Like a rehearsal for you wedding day photos.
A family session goal is to capture the personality of your family. We want to know who you are so we can tailor your portrait session to create beautiful images of your family which can be proudly displayed on the walls of your home. Family portraits are about family and the best way to capture great images is to work in a comfortable environment. We do almost all of our work on location utilizing natural light as often as possible.
